Devil's bridge, at Kirkby Lonsdale, is a mecca for bikers but also provided a nice spot (on a quiet day) for the dog to have a good run around on the stony "beach" beside the river Lune followed by a riverside walk through the Mill Brow Nature Reserve. Visit on a bank holiday Monday at your peril!
Our short walk began by the bridge, where we spend a good half an hour on the stony beach by the river whilst the dog chased various sticks and destroyed (through constant pawing) the carrier bag that housed the many doggy treats we'd bought at the Animal Emporium in the town. The river was shallow and fast running where we camped out, but there were some deep pools which were being enjoyed by other four legged friends.
We followed the obvious footpath beside the river, which led us past football pitches below the town and the Mill Race behind the church.

Lunch was had at the Highwayman Inn at Burrow. The food was good and the dog was welcome on the Garden Terrace. Probably not a good place to visit after your walk if it's muddy or wet!
Doggy rating 7/10
